Non-gaming power consumption is very similar to the AMD reference design. Like on all other Navi cards, multi-monitor power consumption is still too high when compared to that of competing NVIDIA cards.
Gaming power consumption is increased quite a bit over reference. While it is a little bit lower than the THICC II, it is still around 20% higher than the AMD reference. This seems to be the price you have to pay for the large OC out of the box. The increase not only increases your power bill, but also makes life more difficult for the cooler because it has to get rid of the excess heat.
